NETLIST window and blinking of all pins on the selected net
Easier drill down to component pins, trace runs and schematic. Display NETLISTS quickly using the "NET INFORMATION" window that displays the NET NAME of the selected component and pin and all the other pins on the net. The trace run of the selected net is highlighted and all pins on the net blink. If the schematic view is displayed then the net chosen is shown. The user can then select any one of the other pins on the net in the NET INFORMATION box. The result is the NET INFORMATION window will update to the new selected pin and the selected trace highlighted will update also. If the schematic view is displayed then that view will refresh too.

Why Companies Choose Unisoft
Do you have special problems? For example: You do not have the native CAD files for your project. You only have the Gerber Files and a BOM (Bill Of Materials). You need to program your ATE "Automatic Test Equipment" and you do not know where to turn — Our software can do it for you! The software takes your Gerber files and BOM and creates the exact Reference Designators, Net List, X/Y, Part Number, Values and Tolerance data you need to program your project. This powerful feature of ProntoTEST-FIXTURE can automatically create the Netlist from your raw Gerber files in addition to the real reference designators, theta rotation, part numbers, X/Y component pin geometries, values, tolerances, etc. The netlist is a mandatory item for most Test Departments and repair technicians. ProntoTEST-FIXTURE does this by automatically tracking and connecting the copper traces on the PC Board assembly to correct components, pins and vias for each net. Of course the software also imports virtually all standard native CAD file types too!
A possible next step in your evaluation is an informal online demonstration. To schedule a demonstration please call 203-913-0782 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

(For example: Step 1 "Connector - Place Test Probes here for trace opens testing!", Step 2 "Switch - Make sure all switches are in OPEN position prior to In-Circuit ATE testing!", etc.) The part numbers are then automatically uniquely colored. If needed, overlay annotation notes can be added to each step. Next for each step matching test assembly drawings and lists are created. These drawings can either be printed or save to a file (PDF Adobe, etc.) or displayed on the screen.
Quoting - Assembly Cost Estimate Report
Import your PC Board into the Unisoft manufacturing software and you instantly receive a report containing component counts for top and bottom of the PC Board broken down by SMT, Fine pitch, BGA's, Thru-hole, etc. with the cost for each group. You can create as many Assembly Cost templates as you wish, for example one each for either a Low, Medium or High volume build. This is a great quoting time saver for Contract and OEM manufacturers.
Example of a few lines of a report follows:
PC Board: 123-456 Date: 1-22-2013 Base 1st Unit Assembly Build Rate (Includes P/N Setup Rate) = 219.18 Each Unit Assembly Build Rate (Excludes P/N Setup Rate) = 74.18 Total Part Number Setup Rate = 145.00 ________ SMT 2 pins greater than 0402 package type: Greater than .040 inch distance between pin 1 and 2. Top - 4 = total device count, 8 = total pin count Bottom - 78 = total device count, 156 = total pin count Part #'s - 8 = total part numbers Base Rate: 49.84 = (0.12 * device count) + (5.00 * part #'s) SMT 8 pins and greater and 30 mils or less pin spacing (fine pitch): Top - 3 = total device count, 144 = total pin count Bottom - 0 = total device count, 0 = total pin count Part #'s - 3 = total part numbers BGA's - 0 = included in above count. Base Rate: 15.48 = (0.16 * device count) + (5.00 * part #'s) + (0.75 * BGA count)
Electronic Components Search
The Electronic Components Search feature helps you find information such as cost, availability, part shape, electrical specifications, etc. Provides fast searching for electronic parts using your favorite parts search engine for example Octopart, FindChips, Alldatasheets, ECIA Authorized, etc.
Search for electronic parts using the Manufacturer or Vendor P/N for example ERJ-3EKF1002V. Also search by the electronic component number or name such as MAX232, LM393, resistor 10k, shift registers, inverter schmitt trigger, etc.

Report type: Solder joint count with quotation and DPMO estimation. PC Board: Controller Date: 1-12-09 Total Solder Joints = 1104 Total SMT Solder Joints = 598 Total Thru Hole Solder Joints = 506 ____ SMT 2 pins greater than 0402 package type: Greater than .040 inch distance between pin 1 and 2. Top - 4 = total device count, 8 = total pin count Bottom - 78 = total device count, 156 = total pin count Part #'s - 8 = total part numbers SMT 8 pins and greater and greater than 30 mils pin spacing: Top - 17 = total device count, 290 = total pin count Bottom - 0 = total device count, 0 = total pin count Part #'s - 8 = total part numbers BGA's - 0 = included in above count. Thru-hole 2 pins: Top - 34 = total device count, 68 = total pin count Bottom - 0 = total device count, 0 = total pin count Part #'s - 3 = total part numbers Thru-hole 8 pins and greater: Top - 24 = total device count, 284 = total pin count Bottom - 0 = total device count, 0 = total pin count Part #'s - 6 = total part numbers
Export standardized BOM files to Part Sourcing, MRP and ERP software
All types of Bill of Material (BOM) formats can be imported into the Unisoft software and then exported to normalized standard BOM formats that can then be utilized by your other manufacturing software systems such as Part Sourcing, MRP, ERP, etc.
Assembly and Process Sheets
The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create matching assembly lists and assembly drawing sheets for each step in the assembly process. Part numbers are automatically assigned to the assembly step you wish. (For example: Step 1 for Hand Inserts, Step 2 Chip Shooter components, etc.) The part numbers are then automatically uniquely colored. If needed, overlay annotation notes can be added to each step. Next for each step matching assembly lists and assembly drawings are created. These drawings can either be printed or save to a file (PDF Adobe, etc.) or displayed on the screen.
The Unisoft software allows you to quickly create Kitting Labels for fast and accurate electronic component kitting. Quickly select the component part numbers for which you wish kitting labels created. Each label contains the part number, unique part number color, step number, p/n description, reference designator, etc. Fast and easy electronic kitting labels for kitting work orders.
First Article Inspection
Generally First Article Inspection is done on the first PC Boards assembled. When the assembly inspection is satisfactory at that point the PC Board can be built reliably in quantity.
The Unisoft software allows you to BLINK all the components in each part number. The person doing the first article inspection would check that each of those components are correctly installed. If all where correct then they would click the DRAW button to color those components to indicate they are correct. A check mark is placed next to the part number indicating it has been completed. The inspector would continue this process for each part number until all part numbers are colored at which point that would indicate the PC Board was assembled correctly. At that point the PC Board can be built in quantity.
